about

This Wednesday, I will be performing solo at New York's Rockwood Music Hall on stage one, and you should definitely go there! With a show just a couple of days out, It is necessary that I spend some time rehearsing old material this week. With that in mind, my new song became a quick sketch, standing in stark contrast to last week's more elaborate production. I settled into a nice finger-picked guitar part, and I meditated on my trajectory a little bit. The idea is simple: although I often feel directionless, I've got the right traveling companion, so we're alright if we stick together. It is a sentimental concept. There's nothing jaded happening, and there is no obfuscated subtext or double entendre at work. I'm wearing this one on my sleeve. Dig on the new tune while I practice, and maybe I'll see you Wednesday night at nine!

lyrics

Am I on the road to nowhere?
And can I even read the signs?
And ever will I see before me
Everything I leave behind?

So long, so long, so long, so long

And ever if I stood without you
I'm certain that my knees would shake
And so we're on the road to somewhere
Sure of every turn we take

Hello, hello, hello, hello
